Hailed by many as their cookbook of 1998, if not the decade. How To Eat is far more than just an imaginative collection of over 350 uncomplicated, delicious recipes. Nigella Lawson combines a refreshingly down-to-earth practicality with a passion for food and a writer's ability to find just the right words to evoke the taste of a succulent roast chicken or a home-made custard. Her excellent advice on how to organise your kitchen (and your life) for the minimum of fuss is interspersed with moments of sheer, unadulterated pleasure as she pauses to relish what she is preparing to eat. Now available as a high-quality, good-value trade paperback, readers will be able to buy two copies: one for the kitchen, one for the bed-side table.

Buy How to Eat book by Nigella Lawson from Australia's Online Bookstore, Boomerang Books.

Reviews

UK Kirkus Review » Mrs Beeton for the new millennium, Lawson has written a bible for aspiring gastronomes. Dividing it into thematic sections from 'Basics', to 'Dinner' and 'Feeding Babies and Small Children', hits the mark. And it opens with vital basics and often dismissed basics such as stock, sauces and Victoria Sponge. It offers evocative menus from basic, no effort Saturday lunches to 'Serious - No Hostages' meals. But whatever the occasion Lawson always seems to come up with the perfect idea, taking into account such considerations as the likelihood of preparing Sunday lunch with a stinking hangover, or not wanting to leave the scene of seduction mid-dinner to whisk zabagione for pudding. So, the contents are both practical and inspirational, haute-gastronomie for real people. (Kirkus UK)
